Tuition & Financial Aid

We never stop working to make Exeter as affordable as possible. Our tuition is significantly lower than peer schools. We achieve this by limiting tuition growth and supplementing tuition dollars with annual fundraising and endowment revenues.

Approximately 48 percent of our students receive assistance each year.
